Argumentative Ole Fool

Now I am never wrong, I shall just write that down again so that it goes in…


I am always right, if I start off wrong I will end up right, so I am never wrong!

I will twist and turn, and go on and on, until you are either so confused you don’t know how or why it started, or you are so fed up that you will just agree with me. Because I am never wrong!

I know I am like it, and I know that I am doing, and I know that it totally infuriates you, and I will let you into a secret, for a second in time I do feel guilty as I start the process. But I am never wrong, so I would never admit this to you, and I will not give in. I have started it now the spiral is going, so I have to continue to make sure I am right by the end of it.

No one would know this if they met me, I don’t like confrontation, I don’t complain. I don’t really argue, people outside the home can really upset me when they say something and I wont respond.

But with you I am never wrong and I can’t stop myself from doing it.

And I know how close to the line I have come, the line of you walking away and never coming home, all because I can’t be wrong. But even with that looming over me I CAN’T stop what I have started. I know that I am pushing and pushing and pushing and that I SHOULDN’T but the words arguing my point are still coming out of my mouth. God I wouldn’t want to be you sometimes.

It is like an addiction and I can’t control it when it starts. You tell me that you got the point, so I say it again, I bring it up again, I twist what you have said. I keep on and on, it is not good enough for you say I am right and you are wrong I have to feel that you feel it. I have to almost make you buckle to be satisfied…

I hate this side of me…

It is a side I don’t like to see, and right here and now, I want to say SORRY for all the times I have done it to you.

But I also have to apologise as it will happen again as….

I just can not be wrong!

    Oh I know this feeling….

    I’m a lot the same ya know!! I’m always right too!

    So lets fight over which of us is wrong 😉 haha!!

    Yeah… my old relationships… looking back I feel fucked off at myself for my arguementative ways, and my “I’m always right” attitude! I’m not so bad these days… or I think I’m right in saying that I think I am better 😉

    Aww.. it’s always more difficult with the people we are closest to, isn’t it? I’ve had to work on that aspect of my personality… Like you I hate confrontation too though.. It’s interesting.

    Trouble is, my husband and I share this trait… I wonder if our baby will too. Now that would make parenthood (first baby due October) interesting.
    Great piece, and the Writing Workshop looks good too.
